A permit application this week was submitted to Fulton County for “site work” at the future home of The Mill Marketplace in preparation of renovating “space around a historic structure.”

The 26,565-square-foot project is part of North + Line, a $60 million five-story apartment community over a three-level parking deck with 3,867 square feet of ground-level restaurant space.

The Masquerade has since relocated to Underground Atlanta.

This is the second permit filed this year for the project. Plans for interior and exterior demolition at the site were filed February 15.

Site work at the space will cost an estimated $366,990. That figure excludes the demolition and build-out expenses.

Once complete, The Mill Marketplace will be home to at least one restaurant and some retail, according to the project’s site plan.

Representatives for Coro Realty, the firm overseeing The Mill Marketplaces’ leasing efforts, did not immediately return What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.

  1. A trolly running between the Ponce City Market area and a midtown Marta station would offer relief to the tremendous increase in traffic. I am not complaining, I love where I live but the constant prowling car traffic makes the area a mall-experience. Easy fashionable transportation provided by the local retailers will draw the urban visitors for another unique experience. San Francisco trolly’s not downtown Atlanta trolly design.

  2. Well, every new ATL development seems to have a food hall concept. This is not sustainable and only dilutes the food halls in a given area. Its a sexy concept for the investors the developers hope to entice. Next recession, they’ll all fall away and only the larger food halls will survive, and barely.

  3. That remains to be seen but one thing is for sure; this place is absolutely gorgeous. And if they incorporate the right retail mix (I don’t live in this area so unsure of what that may intel) I think something like this will survive for a long time.
